On Sunday I joined approximately 15 other NYC Urban Sketchers at a workshop, “Adding Text to Your Sketches”, taught by Shawne. She chose Grand Central Station as the venue. Huh? Crowded, noisy, huge. For the life of me I couldn’t figure out how she was going to carry this out. I pictured us all, bundled in our winter outerwear huddled in a big crowd around her trying to see and hear Something. Shawne is classy. She practically commandeered the Station Master’s area and staked a claim to a whole section (as long as we were well behaved) of old fashioned train station benches. Plus she brought along a nephew who guarded our coats when we we were sent out to sketch. Practically VIPs were we.

I drive home on local streets after work. On Friday, while I was stopped at the light, I noticed the view from the parking lot behind a corner pancake place. Instead of continuing on my merry way I turned the corner, entered the lot and maneuvered my car until I was satisfied with the view and suspiciously loitered for awhile.

I worked an extra day, Friday, and saw different co-workers than the ones I see on Saturday, my usual workday.
